The doctoral studies (or PhD) consist in writing a PhD thesis which results from the achievement of a research project. During 3 years the student is supervised by a thesis mentor associated to a doctoral school and work on an original subject within one of our Research Labs. By the end of this period, the student defends a thesis and gets awarded the degree of Doctor after the jury’s deliberation.
PhD candidates should hold should hold a Master’s degree or equivalent. Admission is based on academic performances, financial plan and requires a hosting laboratory with a thesis supervisor.
Students usually complete a 1-year Master’s program at the ENSAT before enrolling for a PhDs in one of the Doctoral Schools (see below) but it is possible to directly apply for a PhDs provided there is proven research experience.
